Is it normal to be so sick for so long?

Hi Alex, I am 16 weeks pregnant and have had terrible morning sickness since about 7 weeks. I am just wondering if it is normal to be so sick for so long? I have also been having bad headaches, I have seen my doctor but my blood pressure and everything else is normal. Thanks, Nadia.

Answer: Hi Nadia, Thank you for your enquiry. Some women do experience morning sickness throughout their pregnancy and this is normal for them. The headaches are probably associated with the sickness and it is your body reacting to your hormone changes. It is safe to have paracetemol for headaches during pregnancy. Best wishes, Alex
